As you take the meandering drive to Rushing Waters, you pass by a lovely local home with beautiful landscaping. Then you open your car door to a quite, peaceful setting. When you first walk into Rushing Waters, you eyes are drawn to the beautiful view of the trees, stream, and pathway to the waterfalls. And then you look up to see the canopy bed. Wow!
Coffee on the porch in the morning is relaxing. (The bench by the stream is broken and not comfortable.)
If you go east towards Crosby, turn north when at the end of the road, travel a short distance until you reach Foothills Parkway. Take the parkway and you will go on a beautiful drive with several pull-offs. A perfect place for coffee, picnics, or just to sit and relax. Beautiful views and not crowded at all!
There are a few maintenance items that need to be attended. And if I owned this unit I would like to know about them. The upper cabinets look like they are about to come off the wall. The bathroom needs a fan for ventilation as it gets very steamy in there. Two of the bottom cabinet doors in the kitchen do not shut. I mentioned the bench above. There are only 4 or 5 hangers and 4 closets. The lighting in the bedroom area is minimal. The wifi signal was to weak. There were cobwebs along the valence above the large window. The biggest maintenance item was the beautiful window. It had several streaks of 'something' on the left pain. It was hard to enjoy the view with the yuk on the window and impossible to take a picture in the morning as the sun only made it more obvious.
We did not use the hot tub or large tub in the bedroom area. We were not sure of the cleaning schedule for the hot tub.
We selected this rental because of all the excellent reviews but was somewhat disappointed by the issues above. I do not feel our expectations were out of line. Maybe you recently got a new cleaning service. By the time we left, I had gotten used to the window! I don't think it is our responsibility to contact the owner during our visit. We lived without the wifi (we had phones we could use and we were on vacation -- who needs wifi!) We still drank coffee on the porch (who needs a bench!) By gosh, we still had a good time! We were on vacation! A few maintenance problems weren't going to get us down.
But excellent, no. Sorry Ann. Just take a few moments and a few dollars to get back to the excellent rating. It would be worth it to all your renters.
Owner's Response: I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay in my cabin & I appreciate your suggestions for improvments.I was unaware of the broken bench by the water & the loose kitchen cabinets. My maintenance man has this on his to-do list.THe stain on that window is an on-going problem. There are carpenter bees above that window & they bore holes in the wood & excrete something that is hard to remove.I've made the housekeeper aware of the cobwebs & she will remove them. She does such a good job, but no one is perfect.You did not need to worry about using the hot tub & jaccuzi .They are emptied & cleaned after each guest.I usually check on the hangers & other things & I did notice that there weren't many in the cabin a couple of weeks ago & replenished them. [ people often take them away ] You have made me aware that I need to be more vigilent. I will also check on the WIFI.
If guests like you do not tell me of these problems ,they do not get resolved & I do want everything to be as perfect as possible. So thank you for taking the time to send your review.
